Skyforge soft launches after technical issues

    
125

Skyforge is making the jump to a non-wipable open beta today (aka a soft launch), although the team dealt with a server issue earlier that caused a delay. Fortunately, it looks as though everything’s been handled on the NA side, although the EU server is still down at the time of this writing. “The Skyforge open beta is officially underway. Download the game and begin forging your path as an immortal!” the official Twitter account said.

Founders have already been in the game for a week now, and Skyforge is offering a free mechanic costume to anyone who logs in by July 23rd as incentive to try it out.

Skyforge also announced that it is now selling a collector’s edition and a starter edition to replace the now-expired sale of founder’s packs. The $60 Wardens of the Wasteland edition comes bundled with the Knight and Alchemist classes.

Here’s a peek at our coverage of the game in its lead-up to launch:

ArbsX It’s not an Obsidian game without technical issues either.

TheBigLLS If you’re immortal, as you are in Skyforge, what does it really matter if you just get up again after being stabbed in the chest?

TheBigLLS Many historic warrior such as gladiators did not wear full body armor and often did not have a heavy chest piece. Most often covered were head as you could be killed in the short time you are dazed, the dominant arm as that would be extended while attacking and the legs which obviously give you mobility. 

Her armor and lack of it is not the problem realistically. It is that her torso is not wrap tight with linen or something similar. 

But then what is realistic armor for a god who calls lighting from the skies or casts balls of divine energy from a rod or bolt of ice from a floating crystal. What would be the best material to protect one from such attacks?

kofteburger Chuki792 Unless they changed it since I played I think in Neverwinter you could go to any other zone using the map by clicking on an exit. Skyforge is similar, If you are in an open zone you just need to go to or teleport to an uplink to view the globe and can then move directly to anywhere else including accessing instances and pvp battles.

And Koft, There are open zones and they get quite large. Larger than Neverwinter zones. It is not all missions. There are a lot of game modes open regions, solo or squad missions. 5 person groups missions that are very difficult. pvp battles. puzzle areas. and later on you can do 10 man raids, anomalies, distortions, invasion events, and pantheon wars.
